A Salute To Sharanya

A salute to a young woman, who even in death, has helped other people through organ donation

Tags:

salute to a young womanM. Sharanya, a 21 year engineering student, had met with a road accident near Erode in Tamil Nadu a few days ago, and was declared brain dead by doctors soon after. Her death came shortly after her engineering results in which she had scored 94% marks, and she was on the threshold of what may have been a brilliant career.

Her parents respected her wish that her organs be donated so others could live. Her heart valves, kidneys, liver and eyes were harvested and are possibly already giving someone else a new life.

We, the regulars at Women’s Web need to salute not only the indomitable spirit of the young girl, but also that of her grieving parents.

Rest in Peace, Sharanya.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
